A grand piano crashes off a crane that's lifting it into a block of council flats. Rebuilding it is impossible. But for Stefan, piano restorer and illegal immigrant, it's the only way out of a heap of trouble. And for better or worse, a misfit bunch of tenants weighs in to help him. Everything depends on the wrecked piano and whether they can pull off its restoration. The Score is about messy lives, shaky pasts and even shakier futures. Adrienne Jansen's ninth book is a warm and poignant novel that keeps a sharp observer's eye on this colourful, ramshackle community.

Love this book. Inciteful and engaging. And the way Jansen describes Stefan's love of music is absolute magic!
